Come Home To Good Food At Dave's Deli

Disclaimer : made my trip to Dave's Deli a few days before puasa month started and blogging about it only now. Hahaha
So Dave's Deli has this 30% off promo for the main meals on weekdays which is really, really damn (oh shoot, better don't swear when fasting) good value.

Plenty of selection to choose from and with generous portion too.

Taste wise - might not be so great but with the price I paid (after the 30% discount), I sure ain't gonna complain much.
I had the lamb chop. And after the discount, it cost me less than RM18.00!

Good value, man.

Quite like the mashed potatos too.
With a cup of cappuccino, I also enjoyed this massive slice of apple pie served with custard sauce and ice cream.

Indeed a fulfilling lunch.

Ramadan Blessings

We are almost at the tailend of Ramadan and is at the last stretch of this holy month of fasting and  focusing on our deeds.

I always feel sad when Ramadan is ending although I have to admit, Syawal is a joyous occasion.
It's a time to be charitable too, and we ourselves were at the receiving end of kind folks when our car's battery went dead last Friday.

I have to say, syukur for kind friends and syukur I am able to almost complete the whole of Ramadan. 

Plenty of people are already on leave tomorrow as schools are closed for the Hari Raya holiday starting from tomorrow. To those who are travelling to their hometown, safe travel.

Selamat menyambut Hari Raya Aidilfitri. 
Maaf Zahir dan Batin.

Press Release: RBC Race for the Kids returns to Kuala Lumpur on 29 October 2017

The 5km fun run aims to raise RM 90,000 for Ronald McDonald House Charities  (RMHC) Malaysia
KUALA LUMPUR, 17 June 2017 – Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) today announced that RBC Race for the Kids will return to Kuala Lumpur on Sunday, 29 October 2017 at the scenic Perdana Botanical Gardens.

The 5km non-competitive charity run is expected to attract more than 1,800 runners and walkers of all ages in support of RBC’s charity partner, Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) Malaysia. RBC and RMHC Malaysia aim to raise more than RM 90,000 to fund a third Ronald McDonald Sensory Room at Sekolah Semangat Maju Taiping (SSMT) for children with learning disabilities, autism, Down syndrome and cerebral palsy.

“We’re proud that RBC Race for the Kids Kuala Lumpur is again partnering with RMHC Malaysia to support children in need,” said Andy Allen, Head of RBC Investor & Treasury Services Malaysia. “RBC is a strong advocate of RMHC Malaysia’s longstanding efforts to help young people and we look forward to another successful event in 2017.”

The inaugural RBC Race for the Kids in 2016 raised RM 200,000, easily exceeding RBC and RMHC Malaysia’s fundraising target, and attracted more than 1,500 participants. The funds enabled RMHC Malaysia to build two Sensory Rooms in the Klang Valley.

“We are raising the bar this year and aim to attract even more participants in support of this wonderful cause,” said Victor Sim, Vice President, RMHC Malaysia. “More than 5,000 children in Malaysia have so far benefited from our Sensory Rooms, which stimulate sight, sound, touch and smell to help build cognitive skills and self-confidence.”

RBC Race for the Kids takes place in more than 15 locations around the world including London, Vancouver, Minneapolis, Toronto, New York, Chicago, Sydney, Luxembourg, Hong Kong, and Kuala Lumpur, attracting more than 124,000 participants. Since its launch in New York in 2009, RBC Race for the Kids has raised over US$27 million for children’s charities around the globe.
